Percy Harvin leaves game with concussion
The Seattle Seahawks’ Percy Harvin made it through one half — barely — against the Saints in Saturday’s divisional-round matchup.
Harvin, who didn’t return to action in the second half because of a concussion, had previously been examined for a similar injury earlier in the game.
